Lauren D loves life and I love her!

Every time I take her class it is a journey to my truer self. She challenges me physically, encourages me mentally and supports me spiritually. Lauren’s anatomy knowledge, devotion to teaching and compassion for all students come through in each and every class. I benefit immensely from her creative flow, honesty and contagious laugh. Thank you Lauren for sharing your gifts.

WITH CLASSES THAT ARE SKILLFULLY TAUGHT, LAUREN INFUSES HER TEACHING WITH INSPIRATION, HUMOR, POSITIVITY AND LOVE. LAUREN IS A GIFTED PRACTITIONER WHO HAS SHARED HER PASSION FOR YOGA WITH ME. I ALWAYS LOOK FORWARD TO HER CLASSES AND FEEL DEEPLY CONNECTED TO MYSELF, AND OTHERS. SHE CONTINUALLY ENCOURAGES AND INSPIRES ME TO GROW BOTH ON AND OFF MY MAT. I AM GRATEFUL TO HAVE AN INCREDIBLE TEACHER IN MY LIFE

LAUREN IS AN EXCEPTIONAL YOGA TEACHER. SHE HAS A WAY WITH WORDS AND A FLOW THAT IS INVIGORATING AND GROUNDING. LAUREN’S CLASSES ARE ALWAYS EXACTLY WHAT I NEEDED. I LEAVE CLASS FEELING RELAXED AND ENCOURAGED. SHE LIVES HER LIFE OFF THE MAT HOW SHE TEACHES ON THE MAT - MINDFUL, GRACIOUS AND REAL. IT IS VERY APPARENT THAT SHE LOVES WHAT SHE DOES AND IT SHINES THROUGH IN EACH OF HER CLASSES.

LAUREN WAS ONE OF MY FIRST TEACHERS, AND THE FIRST PERSON TO EVER SUGGEST THAT I BECOME A TEACHER MYSELF. SHE ENCOURAGED ME TO FIND AND FOLLOW MY PATH, AND BECAME A DEAR FRIEND AND MENTOR. SO NEEDLESS TO SAY I TRUST HER WITH MY HEART AND SOUL AND WILL FOREVER BE GRATEFUL TO HER.

LAUREN HAS A BEAUTIFUL GIFT OF HOLDING SPACE FOR HER STUDENTS, FOR CREATING AN ENVIRONMENT THAT IS SAFE FOR PERSONAL GROWTH, PHYSICALLY CHALLENGING, AND INFECTIOUSLY FUN. AS A TEACHER HER CUEING REALLY SHINES. LAUREN IS ABLE TO COACH STUDENTS INTO POSES WITH PERFECTLY CRAFTED LANGUAGE THAT KEEPS STUDENTS FROM OVER THINKING. INSTEAD STUDENTS BREATH AND FLOW IN THE MOMENT, AND SUDDENLY FIND THEMSELVES IN A POSE THEY MANY NEVER HAVE THOUGHT POSSIBLE OR EVEN TRIED.

LAUREN IS A TREMENDOUSLY GIFTED TEACHER. SHE BRINGS ENERGY, LIGHT AND JOY TO THE PRACTICE. YOU CAN ALWAYS COUNT ON AN AMAZING FLOW AND A WARM HUG TO BRIGHTEN YOUR DAY. LAUREN IS CERTAINLY THE ESSENCE OF YOGA IN LIFE.

LAUREN’S CLASS’S LEAVE YOU FEELING EMPOWERED, REFRESHED, CLEAR, AND AT EASE ON A PHYSICAL, EMOTIONAL, AND SPIRITUAL LEVEL. HER CREATIVE AND FUN SEQUENCING, METICULOUS CUEING, AND AMAZING HANDS ON ASSISTS TRULY CREATE AN EXPERIENCE LIKE NO OTHER. HER PASSION FOR THE PRACTICE AND ITS TEACHINGS IS CONTAGIOUS AND SHINES THROUGH EACH AND EVERY CLASS SHE TEACHES. IF YOU’RE LOOKING FOR A DYNAMIC, ALL LEVELS TEACHER TO EDUCATE AND INSPIRE, LOOK NO FURTHER- LAUREN IS YOUR GIRL.
— KRISTEN
TO SAY THAT LAUREN IS A PHENOMENAL YOGA INSTRUCTOR WOULD BE A HUGE UNDERSTATEMENT! AFTER PRACTICING FOR ALMOST 20 YEARS, SHE IS WITHOUT A DOUBT, MY ALL-TIME FAVORITE TEACHER.

AND WHAT MAKE HER CLASSES SO GOOD? WELL IT COULD BE HER PURPOSEFUL APPROACH TO THE VINAYASA FLOW - WHETHER WE’RE WORKING ON TWISTS FOR THE EVENING OR OPENING UP OUR CHESTS - EACH PART OF THE CLASS IS CONNECTED TO THE THEME. OR IT COULD BE THE THOUGHTFUL WAY SHE FRAMES THE CLASS IN TERMS OF OUR MINDFULNESS. WHETHER SHARING A POIGNANT VIGNETTE FROM HER OWN LIFE OR READING A SHORT STORY, THERE’S SOMETHING TO CONSIDER BOTH DURING CLASS AND OFF OF THE MAT. IT COULD ALSO BE THE CLEAR DIRECTIONS SHE PROVIDES DURING CLASS WITH SPECIFIC CUES FOR ADJUSTMENTS. MAYBE IT’S HER MUSIC - A PERFECT BLEND THAT COMPLEMENTS THE FLOW.

IT COULD BE ANY OF THOSE THINGS OR PERHAPS A COMBINATION OF THEM ALL. BUT HONESTLY, I THINK IT’S JUST LAUREN. IT’S HER KINDNESS, APPROACHABILITY, WARMTH, POSITIVITY, AND LOVE THAT IS SO OBVIOUS FROM THE FIRST FEW MINUTES OF CLASS. SHE IS WHAT MAKES HER CLASSES SO SPECIAL.

I AM REMINDED OF A FAVORITE LYRIC “MORNING BRINGS FORTH ALL ITS WONDROUS DELIGHT” AS IT WAS THE “ACOUSTIC SUNRISE” TITLE THAT DREW ME TO MY FIRST SUNDAY MORNING CLASS AND MEETING WITH LAUREN.  

IT IS THE WHOLE PERSON AND NOT JUST THE YOGA INSTRUCTOR SHE BRINGS TO THE MAT THAT KEEPS ME RETURNING. LAUREN’S INTELLIGENCE, KNOWLEDGE, EXPERIENCE, PREPARATION AND COMPASSION ALL ARE EVIDENT IN THE WAY HER CLASS FLOWS.  MAYBE IT IS THE MARATHONER IN HER THAT SEEMS TO HAVE AN INTUITION ABOUT SIMPLE SOOTHING POSES THAT NURTURE THE BODY. REPETITION USING CREATIVE SEQUENCING GROUNDS YOU, WHILE STAYING PHYSICAL AND MENTALLY ENGAGED.

I LOVE THE WAY LAUREN LEAVES ROOM, AND BRINGS THE CLASS TO FINAL RESTING POSE. NAMASTE.
